Shaaanxo and SaturdayNightsAlrite

Hey Everyone!

I haven’t updated my blog in a couple of days and I have gotten up to some pretty cool things this week so I thought it might be worth a post today. Basically, I spend a lot of time on YouTube. I really don’t know what it is, but I just seem to find everything on there too interesting or funny and all the people are FAR too attractive. I quite quickly find myself watching a hundred videos and when I look at my history I pretty much start at people covering songs to cute animal things.

After I only really started using YouTube I stumbled across a Kiwi YouTuber named Shannon from the account Shaaanxo ( and I instantly became obsessed with her videos. She runs a beauty channel and is a complete make-up wiz. I forgot to mention she is absolutely stunning and is seriously has the best tips and tricks. She makes me want to go blonde and has the most creative look books and outfits of the day. A few weeks after that I found another amazing YouTuber from Canada (living in Australia) named Karissa. She also has a beauty/fashion youtube and is such an amazing girl with an incredible fashion sense and her style is literally, perfection. She runs the channel saturdaynightsalrite ( She is so gorgeous and her makeup is always absolutely flawless!

Recently Shannon announced that she was moving to Auckland, and as you can guess, I completely flipped out and decided to make it my mission to meet her somehow whilst she lives here just to say ‘hey’ or ‘I really love your channel’ or something along those lines. It seemed like quite a difficult challenge and I wasn’t quite sure how it was going to work out…  But a couple of days ago Karissa announced that she was coming to Kiwi-Land and was doing a meet-up with Shannon. I instantly cleared my weekend of plans and set out to meet them on the weekend and I ended up getting too!

They are seriously the two most amazing girls and YouTube and were so sweet to everyone. They stood out in the burning heat for a couple of hours signing autographs, posing for photos and having a good chat to everyone who turned out for the event. It was so great to get to meet them and they were even more gorgeous in person. I got so many great pictures of and with them and I was also lucky enough to be able to experience it with my best-friend.  It always seems so surreal to me when-ever I am lucky enough to see a well known face. I go home and watch their videos and I’m like ‘Hey, I met them’. If you haven’t already, I definitely suggest that you check out these girls channels. If you are reading my blog Im assuming that you have an interest in make-up and beauty related things so I know that you will adore their cahnnels!

I am in the first 3 images, The other ones are of the girls with their boyfriends and other viewers. 

Anyways, That basically sums up the main excitement of my weekend. I also managed to get into town on Saturday and see some of the Simri fashion show launch and check out some of the items in their new collections. I plan on posting about that later in the week so I have time to edit all of the images I have taken and so I can procrastinate on what I actually want everyone to see.

Talk to you soon

  1. So jealous of how sunny it looks. I'm stuck to looking out the window to rain (and snow). Looks like you had an awesome day!

  2. I saw your post on one of zoella's blog posts and you said you were new. I am also new! and i thought why not get started by trying to make new friends that are new rather than trying with famous people

    1. I love Zoe's blog! Thanks for checking out mine ♥
